If there’s one meal to eat in Hong Kong, it has to be dim sum. Often mistaken to just mean dumplings, dim sum is actually a selection of small dishes commonly eaten at breakfast or lunch and is best shared among a large group of family and friends. A general rule is that two and a half dishes is the perfect number to order per person, so we say the more the merrier. Found in streetside local eateries and high-end restaurants alike, you won’t have any issues finding options.
These are the must-order dishes for the perfect dim sum experience, as well as a few of the best places to try them in Hong Kong.
